Founded between 1849 and 1851, Lebanon was settled on the site of the Wyota Indian Village. The city was not named "Lebanon" until after the Civil War, and it was named after the hometown of one of its founders, Reverend Benjamin Hooker. When the Frisco Railroad moved into town, the city encountered an economic boom which helped Lebanon attract new industry and commerce to the area.
Lebanon is an important town to travelers to Bennett Spring State Park, which receives approximately one million visitors a year. It is also a popular fishing destination for trout, crappie, bass, catfish and perch because of the Niangua and Gasconade Rivers and the Osage Fork. Many others enjoy float trips, camping, RVing, and hiking through the beauty of the Ozarks.
